've seen this time and again in washington and elsewhere. you know, these investigations take on a life of their own, they become exercises in self-justification and you don't want to -- it's very hard on a human level to say, oh, well, forget because people get invested in this. who was the responsible -- there was some moment where that decision either was made, which seems unclear to me, and then this leaks anyway. or it wasn't. and so -- where was that? and when it involves these people do you not go to the attorney general? >> and, by the way, i want to know when -- was the attorney general brought? in why did the attorney general know? when did the attorney general know it? is the fbi really conducting investigation of the cia director without the attorney general knowing that the fbi's conducting -- >> and the white house counsel. how could the white house counsel. >> the white house counsel has to know. and let me tell you something, i'm not going to say how i know this, but let me tell you something, there are some people high up in official washington that knew about this. i k

's a woman and has access and writes a book ab a man in washington is not reason enough to think there was more than that and given his reputation, his moral character, how many respect him at such a high level here in washington and even as director in the cia, there were sometimes personality clashes. sources that told me between him and the number two in charge who the president has asked to step up in that number one role. more sort of his mind set in the way he felt things should be downed, so people are stunned. >> fred, given the timing of it, that this has come just a week before he was supposed to testify about the benghazi situation, which now he isn't, but we have some news on that in just a few moments, what was his relationship with president obama? >> i'm told that a coweuple of years ago when he was still commander in afghanistan, there was tension with members in the white house staff. when they were reviewing the options on whether to put in more troops, options to box the president in. i've been told in the last couple of years that relations are very good with
>>> the man and his mandate. mr. "hardball"! ♪ >>> good evening, i'm chris matthews in washington. let me start with this. the re-elected president did it today. he said what he's going to do. how he's going to lead. he's going to do it as a world leader entering into negotiations with conditions. those preconditions are clear. a tape back from the bush tax cuts from the top. this is it. it means people know we have a president now who's ready to stand his ground, for jobs, for growth, but not the bush/romney way. no more trickle down now that the people of this country have sent their message from the top up. he will be a democratic president. he will be fair on taxes. he will use those taxes to rebuild this country and educate it up to the tough competition we face in this 21st century. rock solid he is. backed again by a majority of the american people. indeed, re-elected as the only second democrat since the civil war with two majority elections. the other, of course, is fdr. with an updated mandate he is back. some ready to deal, others hiding in their bunkers, waiting for so
and paula and john and jill. joining us now here the washington is jane hall. bob cusack, managing editor of the capital nooup the hill. and amy argetsinger. why has it become synonymous with bore dom? >> well, there's no sex with it. that's the bottom line. this story is wild. the petraeus story has gone in a lot of different directions. first he resigns. then we find out why. then we find out about the other woman. the inappropriate e-mails. >> you're saying that barack obama meeting with john boehner and mitch mcconnell doesn't quite get readers as excited? >> not as titillating. >> this is what the election was fought over and yet i have the impression that a lot of the country is yawning but really many of the journalists covering the story are oning. >> there's a story about low how the mighty are falling. privacy, security, while covering the sex. >> are you suggesting that the bigger issues are actually a bit of a shall we say figure lea le? there are bigger issues there but the problem is the fiscal cliff is extremely important. it's interesting to me that it's ben bernanke who d

[applause] >> hello and welcome to the national press club. i am marvin kalb. the conversation with ted koppel about democracy and the press. if i use the word twilight to suggest that network news, as we have known it, is on its way out and as something new is emerging. whether what is new will satisfy the urgent needs of our democracy cannot be noted at this time. let's hope that it will. without a free and occasionally rambunctious media, we will not be living in an open society. the free press and an open society are intimately linked, one dependent on the other. network news -- if network news is in its twilight, then perhaps our democracy is facing a turning point as well. i asked an old colleague and a
washington, as we all edge closer to the so-called fiscal cliff, we'll ask two political insiders how we can break the pennsylvania avenue stalemate. and then later on on this veterans day, how dot men and women who served and sacrificed feel about how their issues played out on the campaign trail. first topping the political headlines on this sunday, lawmakers weighing in today on whether they can strike a deal to avoid sending the country over the looming fiscal cliff. democratic chuck schumer saying on nbc's "meet the press," it's time for republicans to agree to raise taxes on the wealthy. >> the president campaigned on letting the bush tax cuts expire on people above $250,000 income. the exit poll showed that 60% of the people agreed with it. >> but republican senator tom coburn also on "meet the press" indicating while the gop is on board with closing some tax loopholes, it is not sold on letting the bush tax cuts expire. >> we've had votes in the senate where we've actually gotten rid of tax credits. i think that's a given. and i think the vast majority of americans agree with that. t

matthews in washington. let me start tonight with this. you thought that mitt romney would have stopped this crap. during the campaign he was out there selling it, that president obama was buying black votes by dumping the work requirement for welfare. remember that little sugar plum? it had it all, the accusation that minority voters could be scarfed up with chump change. throw them something and the votes will come pouring back. here he is yesterday, romney, sha noosichmoozing with his don about how the whole thing went wrong. i bought the minority was health care and bought the students. wow, great work there, mitt. you're at it again with your double barrels. one, claims that aren't true, and, two, that old dog whistle of yours, fact. people in the income bracket you mentioned have to kick in to get health care. fact, students still have to play interest on their college loan. nobody is getting anything for free. and the sick thing is your need, mitt, they claim they did. to say the president didn't quite win the election was one big bribery case. question, why is mitt still doing t
in order." and from washington, we've got nbc chief foreign affairs correspondent, andrea mitchell. the great john heilemann also here. >> we also have willie geist. >> the great willie geist also here. >> we did your show. it's a cute little show. >> it's fun, right? it's a good show. >> how's your new life? >> it started nine seconds ago, so i'll let you know. >> your swan song on friday being called by some the greatest swan song since the beatles recording abbey road. >> the "m.a.s.h." finale, i got a lot of that. >> so what's the chances that this paula broadwell, is that her name? >> yes. >> paula broadwell is on "morning joe" the one day that i'm off over the last three years. i missed her. >> crapshoot. >> she was impressive, right? >> yeah, we had her on-sped her book about general petraeus, "all in." she was on the show and we walked away impressed by her. she's very smart. she's obviously a veteran herself, has served, went to west point. obviously, we had no inkling of what was happening behind the scenes as the great andrea mitchell broke the story on friday. >> you kn
in libya. now what happens now that he's gone? suzanne kelly is in washington with that part of this big story. >> susan, as washington reels from the announcement not only that david petraeus is stepping down from the post, but also from the admission he was having an extramarital affair, a u.s. official has said the counter intelligence unit was investigating a tip that he was having an affair because they needed to determine whether there was a potential security risk. the official telling cnn there was no suggestion that the fbi was investigating petraeus for any possible wrongdoing. now, if there were an official investigation focused on the cia director, that would have been something that the congressional oversight committees would have been briefed on. it's a matter of standard procedure, but according to a congressionp aide familiar with the matter, the house and senate intelligence committees weren't told about the investigation until just hours before the director announced his resignation. as for questions over whether the timing of the resignation, coming just before genera
washington post," quote, it's the way of politics that you're going to have some good years and you're going to have some bad years. joins us now is nia hernson and b.e.t. host keith boykin. karl rove ushgs going to win some and lose some, you have good years and bad years. is he trying to minimize the sting? >> this was a stunningly bad year. they lost the presidency and lost seats the in the senate and they loth in the house. more people voted for democratic candidates in the house than for republican candidates. the idea that this is not a sign of against their mandate makes no sense. they've got to compromise. they can't just continue doing the same thing if they want to be competitive in the future. >> what's so interesting, lindsey graham was on, and he was talking about immigration. i got to play his comment, and i want your thoughts on the other side of it. let's play it, please. >> it's one thing to shoot yourself in the foot. just don't reload the gun. i intend not to reload this gun whether it comes to hispanic. i intend to tear down this wall and pass an immigration reform bill t
next year. >> so she thinks what? >> there is wealth protection lobby in washington. and he's part of norquist and it's powerful. but i think we're at a point in time where it might be a little bit out of step with its own constituents. i covered campaign finance last year. i spent the whole year talking to millionaires and billionaires. and i, too, on the other side of the aisle, did not talk to one, including david koch who said, sure, i could see some higher taxes on me in exchange for a bunch of compromise. the mathematical truth is, anti-tax republicans could come out of this with a super-sweet deal on spending, huge spending cuts for historically very small tax increases on a small number of americans. yet they want to do the deal. and that ultimately is going to be very good for their side. >> and a reminder, that's exactly what happened in 1991. that's exactly what happened. is that the republicans, they talked a very, very good game, but they walked out of the white house and also out of that deal with a pretty sweet deal. when you take a look at the overall mechanics. and
, washington correspondent for "newsweek" and the daily beast and alicia menendez, host and producer for huff post live. thank you for joining me. >> hey, rev. >> hi. >> is the president going to hold the line on these tax cuts for the rich? >> the progressive community is determined to keep him strong on this. and they are very heartened by what they've heard so far. he said he needs to take the message to the people more. he's in a much better bargaining position than he was before the election. i mean, this fiscal cliff, the republicans do not want to go over this. if they do, their priorities are going to get hit. military spending and all those bush tax cuts go away automatically. the president has them in a much better position for where he wants them. and i think he'll probably be pretty tough on this. >> alicia, will he hold steadfast? i mean, clearly progressives are in a much stronger place than they were and republicans are much weaker now. >> yeah, no, i think that he will hold the line. i don't think you would have heard those leaders coming out of that meeting talking the way th
beyond the beltway asking the public to pressure republicans back in washington about raising taxes on the rich. some in the gop know they lost badly and are starting to deal with it. conservative pundit bill crystal surprised a lot of people when he went on fox news and started talking sense. >> it won't kill the country if we raise taxes a little bit on millionaires. i don't understand why republicans don't take obama's offer to freeze taxes for everyone below $250,000, make it a million. really republican party going to fall on on a bunch of millionaires? >> it won't kill the country? take the president's offer? that almost sounds rational. and now some republicans in congress are also admitting they need to compromise. but not all conservatives are able to handle the new reality. in fact, some are beginning to lose it. for years grover norquist has been bullying gop lawmaker there is to never ever agreeing to raise taxes. but now he's claiming this election wasn't about taxes at all. >> the president was committed -- elected on the basis that he was not romney and that romney wa
